Programs of Study
Subject specific curriculum as outlined in Alberta Education's Programs of Study identify what students in Alberta are expected to learn and do as they progress from Kindergarten through to Grade 12. Programming decisions based on curricular learning outcomes, are made to determine the activities, assessments and resources that will be used in order to support student achievement consistent with student ability. Programming that is flexible and responsive to students’ learning needs provides for student success. As student learning is cumulative, ongoing assessment informs students, parents and the teacher what has been learned and what remains to be learned.
Role of Parents & Guardians
Parents play an important role in shaping the way their children view learning. My Child’s Learning: A Parent Resource is a tool offered by Alberta Education which provides parents with a better understanding of Alberta’s curriculum and how they can help their child. Through My Child’s Learning, parents will discover what their child is learning, how they’re assessed and what resources are available to help them be successful from kindergarten to Grade 12.
Through religious education, students develop the knowledge, beliefs, skills and values needed to build a relationship with God. It is an essential and integral part of a Catholic school. Religious education has four essential characteristics. It is Trinitarian. It recognizes God as the creator. It recognizes Jesus, his Son, who reveals God to us and, in turn, reveals God’s Spirit. It is based on Sacred Scripture. It is also based on the life experience of students. Religious education is presented within the tradition of the Catholic Faith Community which provides students with experiences of prayer, faith, love and justice. Teachers and students integrate gospel values in day to day activities as well as in service projects in the school and community whenever opportunities arise.
